The ROI of a Lifetime

The ROI of a Lifetime

People often say to me that Affiliate Summit is like a family reunion – they look forward to seeing the friends they’ve come to know during their time in the industry. But sometimes, the relationships that blossom at Affiliate Summit become more than friends.

At the party, ShareASale was giving away branded martini shakers. David had gotten one and didn’t feel like carrying it around, so he hid it under a table. When he returned to the table to retrieve it at the end of the night, Catherine was standing there. This is when the two first met.

There was an instant connection.

After two years of dating, David brought Catherine back to the New York Marriott Marquis for a drink to relive that moment. With help from the hotel management and frequent Affiliate Summit speaker Sean Steinmarc, David led Catherine to the same table in the same spot where they met.

After some small talk, David commented, “Wouldn’t it be funny if there was a martini shaker under this table?”

They both laughed as David bent down to have a look. Sure enough, there was a ShareASale martini shaker with something rattling inside.

After opening the lid, David revealed an engagement ring and asked Catherine to marry him. She said yes!

On August 12, 2017, David and Catherine tied the knot (that’s them on the cover of issue 40 of FeedFront magazine during the first dance). Congrats!
